Biographical Information[edit]

Dan Daub pitched six years in the majors, mostly for the Brooklyn Grooms. While his record was usually around .500, his teams were also typically not at the top or the bottom of the league.

Daub was born in Middletown, OH, north of Cincinnati, and attended Denison University, located near Columbus, OH. Dan is the only major leaguer through 2009 to have attended Denison.

He was at Denison in 1891, and in 1892 came to the majors with the 1892 Cincinnati Reds, for whom he pitched four games. Thereafter, the rest of his major league career from 1893-97 was with Brooklyn. He also pitched some for Chattanooga in 1893, Hartford in 1896, and several other teams after his major league days from 1898-1901.

The New York Times of December 22, 1895 carried an article wherein a resident of Mintonville, OH, accused Daub and others of "white capping", where they allegedly stoned her house. She swore out warrants, but the paper apparently didn't carry any follow-up articles as to how it all turned out.

Daub is sometimes called "Mickey Daub".

He coached the Ohio Wesleyan University team in 1902. One of his players was catcher Branch Rickey. When Daub chose not to return as coach in 1903, Rickey became the coach.

He was a minor league umpire in 1907.

"Dan Daub's career with Brooklyn has been a story of many releases. About four times he has been served with a notice that his services were no longer required, and as often the notice has been recalled." - Sporting Life, July 24, 1897
